I got tagged by a blogging friend Tricia at Library Queue on a fun book challenge. Here's how it works:
Here are the rules:
- Find the book closest to you with at least 123 pages.
- Turn to page 123.
- Find the fifth sentence.
- Post the next 3 sentences.
- Tag 5 people.
"It's hard to tell, of course, whether Ms. Noonan seriously thought I was comparing myself to Lincoln, or whether she just took pleasure in filleting me so elegantly. As potshots from the press go, it was very mild--and not entirely undeserved.
"Still, I was reminded of what my veteran colleagues already knew--that every statement I made would be subject to scrutiny, dissected by every manner of pundit, interpreted in ways over which I had no control, and combed through for a potential error, misstatement, omission, or contradiction that might be filed away by the opposition party and appear in an unpleasant TV ad somewhere down the road."
On to the tagging--I'd love to see what Lula Mae, Kristen, Cheri, Janene, and Sara are reading. Anyone else who wants to join in the fun is welcome to play!
